Dubya the Mighty Hunter: Shot Endangered Bird
And people actually believe that GOPers are tough and keep us safe? Well, not if you're a 78 yr old lawyer or an endangered bird: "Michigan’s Mourning Doves Targeted: Dove hunting results in mistaken identity kills of other birds, such as kestrels and other protected species. This is evidenced by an actual account that involved George W. Bush ('94). Even in the presence of experienced hunting guides and an entourage of media, in 1 of only 7 shots he fired off, he mistakenly shot a federally protected Killdeer and had to pay a fine." Well, since he went AWOL during Vietnam, at least Dubya can now proudly put this endangered bird in his kill column.
